Author Taavi Moore


  • 2 tbsp flax seed meal
  • 1 tbsp water
  • ½ cup mashed sweet potato
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • ½ cup tapioca flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Combine flaxseed meal and water in a small bowl. Let sit for 5 minutes to thicken.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flax egg, mashed sweet potato, applesauce, maple syrup, and vanilla until smooth. Add flours, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Use a wooden spoon or spatula to combine until a soft cookie dough forms.

  3. Use a cookie scoop to portion out dough. Roll into a ball and place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 12-13 minutes until light golden brown. Let cool for 8 minutes. Roll cookies in cinnamon sugar mixture (1/4 cup coconut sugar and 1 tbsp cinnamon).
